After his plans were ruined, Frank felt defeated. Soon, he felt guilty and unlovable.
His neighbors knew he had stolen their gold, but they showed him grace and offered him forgiveness.
Why do you think they forgave the Crank?
Even though He had wronged them, they loved Frank anyway.
Even though God’s people sinned again Him, He loved them anyway.
On Christmas, Jesus came for the guilty and unlovable.
On Christmas, God brought light into a dark and lonely world.
Read John 3:16
God’s gift to us is salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! (1 Corinthians 9:15)
When we accept this gift, we experience a heart change. Like Frank, we can celebrate the gift of Jesus everyday of the year! He changes our lives, filling us with hope, peace, joy and love to share with the world.
Read Matthew 5:15
How will you share the gift of Jesus with others?
